A short, shady loop around picture-perfect Mardukal Billabong.
This relaxing walk takes you to a beautiful picnic spot overlooking the water. The billabong is lined with andjimjim (water pandanus), towering silver-leaved paperbarks and shady syzygiums.
Take a fishing rod and fish from the high bank at the end of the walk, but if you get a snag say goodbye to your lure – large saltwater crocs live in this billabong so stay out of the water. They rarely show themselves but they are there – don’t go down the bank to the water’s edge!
